    Just wondering if the ranking is going to change when GW leaves office...

    ...scarier is there are several presidents that actually won 2nd terms of office and got the "worst" legacy label.

    James Buchanan (1857-1861)
    Andrew Johnson (1865-1869)
    Millard Fillmore (1850-1853)
    Ulysses S. Grant (1869-1877)
    Herbert Hoover (1929-1933)
    Zachary Taylor (1849-1850)
    Warren G. Harding (1921-1923)
    Franklin Pierce (1853-1857)
    John Tyler (1841-1845)
    William Harrison (1841)
    Richard Nixon (1969-1974)
    Jimmy Carter (1976-1980)

    Actually, you are the one making the comparison. How can you compare him to Carter when he isn't even in office yet? Damn, you're stupid.

    Well, let the guy have a chance for crying out loud. What happened to optimism? Don't hate just because your guy didn't win. You're an American, correct?

    so a majority of Americans chose a (portrayed by Republicans) "Socialist/Communist" who pals around with "terrorists" and he still won? Wow did they BLOW IT!

    Give him a chance Nick -- you're from Texas - I'm from North Dakota - our states would vote for a can of Spam for President in it ran as a Republican and I think we did the last 8 years so we're both guilty...

    Spam has a good paltform though! It fed the Americna family when the war effort required more meat! And since we are at war, it is clearly the best choice! :tongue:

    I call foul on William Henry Harrison. He didn't have time to do much of anything causing long-lasting damage.

    I say replace him with Dubya.

    didn't he catch pneumonia giving his inaugural address and die like a month later? Yeah - he's a scratch since he didn't really do anything in office, except die.

    You mean, "his interminable inaugural address, the longest in history running one hour and 45 minutes, delivered on a freezing day, in a snowstorm, without his overcoat on."

    Yessss!!
    Finally..someone who doesn't think Ronald Reagan was a saint.
    He was a fucking lying bastard...remember Iran Contra?
    "Umm..Umm..well, err..err.. I don't recall."
    So in case you don't remember because maybe you're too young,
    or are not up on your history....
    Under the Reagan administration, the U.S. and Donald Rumsfeld befriended SADDAM HUSSEIN,armed and helped Saddam with the development of chemical and nuclear weapons against Iran in the Iran/Iraq war while the US looked the other way

    Fuck Ronald Reagan (aka) Union Buster
